The patient was assessed objectively for weight, BMI, and other anthropometric measurements along with his lipid profile essay. Subjective criteria included the lakshanas of sthaulya as per the ayurvedic literature at regular intervals.

Conclusion: This case study was a genuine attempt to observe the effect of the classical ayurvedic formulation, Gomutra haritaki on metabolism of fat in an sthula (obese) person and eventually preventing the risk of obesity and its further complications.
